The fella over there with the hella good hair

// Montreal, QC

Jägermeister poutine at Brutus, an all-bacon restaurant: Bacon, caramelized onions, cheese, and "Jägermeister sauce."


// Toronto, ON

Idea: A Sideshow Melkshake topped with blue cotton candy and a meringue bone.


// Ypsilanti, MI

Do not adjust your screen. Eastern Michigan's football field is grey.


// Las Vegas, NV

There's eclectic, and then there's Mötley Crüe leading into Ariana Grande – which you can enjoy for free with an obstructed view!


// San Francisco, CA

Hiro Sandwich at Urchin: Three meatballs "sandwiched" between a slice of baguette and two roasted marrow bones, served over fries.


// Seattle, WA

4 discs, 17 films, but only one of them stars Kiefer Sutherland, and it's a television movie from 1986 about teenaged vigilantes.

So it's not 24, nor is it 24 hours of films starring Kiefer Sutherland.

William Smith

The alleys and narrow one-way streets of Philadelphia make me want to film a car chase here.

The dirt-cheap cab fares and car park rates make me want to move here.


SEPTA
PATCO
KORRA
NARUTO
MARTA
GOKU
MUNI

Transit system or anime character?


I was surprised to see Stevie Richards on the subway.

Stevie Richards won the Hardcore Championship 22 times?!

Hmm… According to Wikipedia, he won it 21 times.

Only a punk would claim a championship he didn't win.

McKern: Only a punk would call The Legend of Korra "anime."
Jon: #notallpunks


Another ad on the subway:

Better see Biebs!

How is Justin Bieber, Esquire not a show on truTV?

I can't decide which would amuse me more: Bieber representing Bieber, or Bieber cross-examining Bieber.

If he ever becomes a judge – Justice Bieber.



I'm coming home.

There's only one everything

Almost…finished…clearing out my boss' flat.

Jon: You think I can cancel your cable service for you?
Pep: Why not? You pose as me and sign my signature all the time.
Jon: Yes, but, won't they check identification?

Jon: Hey, did you read the surrender agreement? "Walls must be painted back to original colour"?!

Jon: Will they deduct from the security deposit for leaving the shower curtain? I've never moved to this extent before.
B: Jon, people your age are raising families.


Purgatory Chasm

Game Show Idea: A variation on The Price Is Right with phone number games instead of pricing games. You win stuff based on how well you know the phone numbers of contacts in your phone.

"All these digits are one away from the digits in your co-worker Tom's phone number."
"Gentleman, do I have seven digits correct?"

Pathfinder on a nine-by-nine grid.

For Plinko chips: "Scott Rothman's area code: Starts with a 4 or ends with a 0?"


So a white person unconscionably kills a black person. Punish said white person by dyeing his or her skin black — John Howard Griffin, but permanent. No prison time or death penalty, just irrevocably alter his or her appearance. #jonjustice


Rory: WWF : WCW :: Mad: Cracked.
Jon: But Cracked never rivaled Mad like WCW rivaled WWF.

Jon: Extending the analogy, John Severin is Hulk Hogan, and Don Martin is Bret Hart.
Rory: Duck Edwing is Shawn Michaels?

Suplex. Repeat.

Greatest Ever! Definitive! Alien Ant Farm?!

Of those 19 songs, only "The Best of Me" really fits the bill.

How do you not go with "Dammit" and "Fat Lip"?

What is this I don't even…

[pause]

"'What I Go to School For' by Busted."
"The Lemonheads' cover of 'Mrs. Robinson.'"
"'Blurry' by Puddle of Mudd."

Hüsker Dü couldn't have been on this disc?

It's like the record company just shuffled through the music libraries of its three "punk-est" employees.
